High Blood Pressure and Hypertension Answer A20239
Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am glad to help you out. Firstly, in view of the swelling of the feet, a detailed analysis of the kidney, liver and heart functions need to be assessed to look for the cause of the same.

Simultaneously, diabetes and hyperparathyroidism are 2 important entities which need to be ruled out.

Please get a blood sugar and PTH levels done to rule out these possibilities. Please consult a physician for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
